Evergreen Cemetery, dedicated in 1861, opens this issue dedicated to the various cemeteries to be found in greater Rutland, accompanied with descriptive photographs.
The first of these shows Warren W. Dexter’s unusual position on the cover, required to photograph the Hon. Samuel Williams stone at the Main Street Cemetery.
The history of the six cemeteries include Main Street Cemetery 1787-1817 ; West Street Cemetery 1817-1861, the principal secular burial ground until the opening of Evergreen; Pleasant Street Cemetery in West Rutland 1787; Whipple Hollow also of West Rutland and the Town Farm for the poor.
The origin and founding churches of each, as well as their present condition are described in detail.
